Ugarte, Manuel (1878–1951)

Manuel Ugarte (b. 1878; d. 2 December 1951), Argentine diplomat and writer. Born in Buenos Aires, Ugarte as a young man joined the Socialist Party. A prolific writer, he founded the daily La Patria and the review Vida de Hoy and became a prominent member of progressive literary and journalistic circles in the capital. A passionate anti-imperialist and pan-Hispanist, Ugarte served during Juan D. Perón's first presidency as Argentine ambassador to Mexico (1946–1948), Nicaragua (1949), and Cuba (1950). He formulated Pan-Hispanism in opposition to U.S.-backed Pan-Americanism. His diplomatic career was cut short by failing health, however. He died in Nice, France, in 1951, and three years later his body was disinterred and buried in La Recoleta cemetery in Buenos Aires. His writings include travel books (Visiones de España, 1904), novels (La venganza del capataz, 1925), short stories, poems, and political essays (El porvenir de la América latina, 1911; El destino de un continente, 1923; and La nación latinoamericana, 1978).
